That means the most likely outcome was Nylander taking a check and not getting to play hockey. I dont think that is satisfactory for Nylander either. This is a way out for both Nylander and Washington.

I will say that Siberia is not a step up from Edmonton.
Nylander's wife doesn't have to go to Russia. She could stay in D.C. or Sweden.
